Root Disk Exhaustion on Vcenter

Hi

We have Vcenter 6.7,  our vcenter  root disk used space is greater than  80%

I see this KB (VMware Knowledge Base ) but in my vcenter log file used space is 1.8 M

How I can solve this problem?

Pls get the df -h output and validate if there is any file in the root partition which is consuming space.

You can check under /var/log/vmware or /var/log and dig more on which file/directory is consuming more space.

To check the space utilization by directory, you can use du -sh *

Thanks,

MS

I checked in my lab and seems to be the same

root@vcsa1 [ /var/log/journal ]# du -sh *

1.1G    438a7381704546b4b2a8e4684169dad3

8.1M    794d29c44c774596821d34c95f8e6f91

There might be something else taking up space possibly..

You can run this on the root partition which gives the files which are above 100MB size. you can change 100M to 200/300 to change the number or value if you want to specify size

find . -type f -size +100M -exec ls -lh {} \;

Thanks,

MS
